Landscape Architecture Magazine Goes Digital

ASLA announced that Landscape Architecture magazine has introduced its digital format with the April 2009 issue.  Landscape Architecture will now be available through Zinio, which offers a number of architecture and design magazines, and will be searchable and search-engine-optimized, increasing the magazine’s usefulness for research and archiving.  Interactive and multi-media capabilities will also be embedded in the digital issues, allowing readers to link directly to related online information. 

Annual subscriptions to the digital version of Landscape Architecture may be purchased for $44.25 per year and single issues may be purchased for $5.25 each, 25 percent off the newsstand price.  In addition, knowing that many readers keep their magazines for several years for research purposes, past issues of Landscape Architecture going back to May 2006 are being uploaded for single-copy purchase. 

Editor, Bill Thompson, FASLA, said: “Landscape Architecture magazine was founded in 1910, and as we near the 100th anniversary, its online presence brings it fully into the 21st century.”

    I think this is a great step into the 21st century. I am one of those people that store up the past issues for future reference. I also prefer to be able to take the magazine anywhere to read a print copy. Reading a long article on a computer screen can be hard on the eyes.

    One feature I like about the digital copy is that it is possible to print specific pages, for storage as either printed or digital copies. I am in residential design, so it would be great to be able to print the residential articles to keep for reference in a folder on my computer but still hold onto the printed copies for reference to other articles.

    What I would like to see is the opportunity for those of us that order the print copy to also be able to access the digital copy either for free or a discounted price. That way it would be easier to store copies of individual articles, like I mentioned before.
